My whole styling / drying time has gone from a hour to about 15 mins.
I had keratin put in my hair, my hair was a bastard for drying as it seemed to lock in the wetness if that makes sence my DDS is the same but with that and the Dyson and not having to spend 30 mins plus straightening it is a bonus!
I love mine. It's really fast, light and quiet. Ive got straight fine hair and the results with the Dyson are fantastic. The attachments are good too. I'd definitely recommend it mainly for the time it saves me every day.
I love mine, but I have really difficult hair and need to look groomed for work. I use it without the nozzles, and it dries my hair to perfection in just a few minutes. I have not had a professional blow dry since getting it . Lovely swishy hair all day !
Got mine as a surprise Christmas present from DH. He was so pleased with himself. Hate to say it but honestly i don't rate it. Maybe takes couple of mins off drying but not massive difference. I have long thick hair. It's very pretty and lightweight but don't see any difference in my hair from this hairdryer compared to the £40 I had previously been using.
I tried it out at a friends, I didn't like it as the handle wasn't a nice shape, it didn't feel right in my hand and the buttons were all in a strange place, but then i've had a parlux for years so I guess it is going to feel strange. But I didn't like it enough to want to get used to the change.
If all those who like the Dyson could tell us what they were using to dry their hair with before, it could help us with the comparisons. e.g. if I was using a little travel hairdryer then of course the Dyson would seem like magic.
I love mine. I have very long very thick and frizzy wavy hair. This more than halves drying time, my hair is unbelievable soft, shiny and smooth and straightening takes no time at all now. It's super quiet, the attachments are great, really I am really very I,roessed and hugely rate it. I have had quite a few compliments since using it. Huge fan!
Some great tuition videos on the Boots website to maximise usage.
It seems that if you have tricky hair either thin and whispy or very thick/wavy it's good but if you just have normal straight hair you honestly don't need to spend £300 on this hairdryer . I use the GHD ones at my gym and get exact same results and they are around £100 x
I have long thick frizzy hair and my 2200w babyliss is great, cost £30.
I do live in England's warmest flat - yes that is a bonus now - so I did fork out for a Dyson fan, it's excellent but I can't see how a hairdryer can be that advanced, I can blast dry even my hair pretty quick, wash hair daily.
Was offered a trade price parlux but on,y had 6 mo guarantee and was heavy compared to what I have.
